A new book that says that Apple's best days are over has been called "nonsense" by the company's chief executive.
Apple chief Tim Cook also says that author Yukari Kane's book Haunted Empire, which chronicles the company after the death of its founder Steve Jobs, failed to "capture Apple, Steve or anyone else in the company," according to CNNMoney. Kane is a former Wall Street Journal reporter who covered technology.
From the article:
Kane writes in her book that a decline at Apple (AAPL, Fortune 500) was "inevitable" after Jobs ceded the reins of the company to Cook in 2011, shortly before his death from cancer. She paints Cook as a harsh leader, and says the company's "well of ingenuity" has "run dry."
That's hogwash, according to Cook. "I am very confident about our future," Cook told CNBC in a statement. "We've always had many doubters in our history. They only make us stronger."
